Brilliant!
8 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fat Actress is, without doubt, one of the best new sitcoms since Sienfeld.

I laughed my butt off. I have always been a semi-fan of Kirsty Alley, but I have to say that she is SOOO good in this show that I immediately fell in love with her. I have a feeling that the people who won't find this show funny are actually the targets of its humor -- which is, to say, most definitely NOT fat people.

Smart, hilarious writing, great acting, all around brilliant. The appearance of Travolta and, later, Kelly Preston, had me rolling on the floor. I am not a Showtime subscriber, but after watching this preview, I'm seriously considering signing up.

Congratulations, Ms. Alley.
